The Public Policy Forum - Sustainable Prosperity Survey of Canadian Public Opinion on Climate Change
7:30 am - 10:00 am
Delta Ottawa Hotel & Suites
Energy and climate change continue to be among the most pressing issues that face the global community. For Canadians these issues are of utmost importance not just as consumers of energy but also as a major energy exporter. It has become imperative for Canadian policymakers and business leaders to closely follow domestic and international policy developments and public views on energy and climate change. To contribute to an informed debate, this event will feature the results of the Public Policy Forum - Sustainable Prosperity Survey of Canadian Public Opinion on Climate Change and its American counterpart. These ground breaking academic studies are the first of their kind to explicitly compare public opinions on climate change science and policy in Canada and the US; and will provide a basis for discussing energy and environmental policy directions for North America. The breakfast roundtable will engage policy makers, researchers, NGOs, and business leaders who have an interest in these policies. Following the initial release and roundtable, an in-depth analysis of the survey results and implications will appear in publications by the Brookings Institution in the United States and the Public Policy Forum in Canada among others.
